Hierarchical fibrous nanocomposite electrodes: a novel class of fibrous composites with hierarchical pores is synthesized by confined growth of V2O5 nanowires within a conductive porous CNT scaffold. Such a unique structure and composition endows the composites with high electrochemical capacitance and excellent rate performance, opening a new avenue for a large spectrum of device applications.
